- Primary source shnid 8957
- Patch source (sbd) shnid 1411
- Greatest Story patched from alternate sbd source. The patch was adjusted
with iZotope Ozone to brighten it up and better match the primary source.
- Several sub-second dropouts @ 12:38 in Dark Star repaired.
- The disc breaks were made seamless.
- He's Gone was already patched from (I believe) the same alt. source used to
patch GSET.
- Dark Star has been left intact, tracked as a single cut. In the previous seed,
there was a "Drums" track which was really a brief Drums followed by Phil/Drums
and then an extended jam before the return to the theme. Dark Star breaks down
like this:
- Thanks to Charlie Miller for his comment under shnid 8957 which suggested
this fix.
- The only way to get this onto 3 audio discs would have been to cut out much of the
tuning and banter, which is often entertaining. Jerry says to Weir before BTW, "You
gonna bullshit all night or play..."
- Put the kids to bed and enjoy this fine show.

Subject: The Grateful Dead perform in your living room
1. Crystal clear vocals, as loud as and at times slightly louder than the guitars in this board mix.
2. High recording levels. Sounds louder than the other SBD (GEMS). They both have a slight background hiss. Seems like you hear it less on this one.
3. Stage banter throughout, mostly Phil, back and forth with the audience, whom you can't hear at all- must have been some distance between front row and musicians. Some funny parts, but also annoying as Bobby repeatedly asks Owsley to turn him up.
4. Sugaree- soulful vocals with excellent accompaniment on piano.
5. Dark Star- nice long jamming version, only flaw the first word of the 2nd verse, starts to sing "Dark" then switches to "Mirror", not a big deal.

Subject: Typo note
I e-mailed the site and was told to post my comment as a "review," so here I am.

Between the URL and the references on this page, there's a mix of 34083 and 34803. Going by db.etree, I believe 34803 is the correct ID.

I understand this is a good show, but I haven't listened to it yet. If and when the typos are corrected, I'd vote to delete this "review."

UPDATE: Whoa! That was quick! But you missed one (the 2nd ffp file).

It looks like I don't have the ability to delete this "review," but anyone with that ability is hereby authorized to do so.
